TITLE OF TALK:
NĀ TE AWATEA-ROA ME TE MAKARIRI-TŌ-ROA, KO MĀTOU
WE ARE DESCENDED FROM THE LONG TWILIGHT AND THE
LONG DRAWN OUT COLD.
The Polynesian colonists who became the Māori of New Zealand found a
very different environment to that of tropical Polynesia and had to adapt
very rapidly in order to survive. The climate then cooled sharply (the Little
Ice Age), Māori became isolated from tropical Polynesia, kumara (sweet
potato) became much harder to grow, and populations of large, easily hunted
animals were declining.
Māori adapted to the new conditions by developing better management of
environments and resources in the worsening climate to ensure their own
survival. Colonization from Europe then presented new challenges that are
slowly being addressed. Adaptation is therefore ongoing and is likely to
remain so for some time.
